Okay, so we're watching Headline News and they're talking about the drugs that keep slipping through the cracks in the FDA approval process.

"We're dealing with products that are difficult to evaluate," said the acting commissioner of the FDA.

WHAT? No you're not! You're dealing with effing financial incentives to rush pain killers and dick-stiffeners through to the marketplace while drugs that could wipe out cancer and AIDS are left sitting in pergatory of the drug approval process for years and years!

There is nothing "difficult to evaluate" about that, you fucknut. As long as money and healthcare are woven so deeply, there will never be swift approval of the drugs that don't make pharmaceutical corporations billions of dollars.
